The Red Cross asserts that every two seconds someone in the United States is in need of blood. This comes out to nearly 36,000 units of red blood cells every day.  Utilizing more than 145,000 blood drives a year, this organization collects 40% of the nation’s blood supply and provides blood for patients in 2,600 hospitals across the country.
